Spent there one night including dinner and breakfast. Friendly atmosphere and I liked the rooms all with traditional furniture and decorations. Albanian feeling of houses and food. But need to improve breakfast service.

When I think of this place,Hacienda ,is the first thought that springs to my mind, as if you where invited as a guest to a South American’s entrepreneur’s home, with the only difference, that your’e in Tirana. Members of staff are polite and attentive , rooms are king size, and bathrooms even bigger.Garden is mature,well tended and mature. Food is... More

Beautiful, traditional hotel on a central and bustling road in Tirana - yet set back from road so quiet and safe. An oasis of calm - even ducks and geese in the pond at the front. 20 min walk from the main square. Amazing restaurant (if pricey compared to some). Lovely little pool, with all rooms around the pool/courtyard. Great... More

This is an amazing Hotel- not luxurius-a converted chicken farm,looking so different.... The owners proudly grow their own vegetable while the meat prepared on an open fire place over charcoal is simply amazing.We had the best tasting bisteca Fiorentina,a freshly made spinach pie and an amazing bottle of red Riserva wine by Kallmet. This dinner at 25 euros per person... More

I spend a lot of time in Albania for both business and pleasure, I only wish I would have found this hotel on my first trip. Bujtina e Gjelit is the perfect mix if you are looking at balancing luxury with a splash of Albanian tradition and culture. This is a family hotel built by hand with every little detail... More

Stayed here for the last days of my 14-day Albanian tour and this was definitively the most compliant to western Europe standards. The hotel itself is a charming Ottoman style house with a high quality restaurant and swimming pool. The Rr Don Bosco is a lively small street with lots of shops and small markets, cafes and fast food. The... More

A great hotel. I stayed here for a weekend with wife and friends. Been visiting Tirana very often and know it's noise, but at Bujtina e Gjelit you don't have the feeling you are in Tirana, it's more like you are somewhere in Theth or Valbona, it is so quite and relaxing. The staff was very lovely, very nice and... More

This is a fantastic hotel. I stayed here for about a week, the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is relaxing despite being in the middle of the city. The food was one of the best parts of the stay. There is always something delicious available and everything is made in house. They even have gardens across the... More
